Hide Ownership on ArcGIS Hub Site

Our organization is hoping to show the Organization Name as the author for all of our hub site features, surveys, apps, etc. rather than the items owner, but I am not finding a way to do that. I have tried to edit the metadata on individual layers, but nothing seems to work. Is there any way to do this?

If you have a spare user license, you can always create an account for your organization. For instance, we have a user "kendall_gis", whose full name appears as Kendall County GIS.

I did think about that, I was hoping there was another workaround that did not require changing the ownership of all of the items in the hub.

@MattAdams please open an idea for content ownership configurability in the ArcGIS Hub Ideas board.  We've been thinking about methods to address this after observing multiple cases of a "proxy user" as @jcarlson suggests.
